News / Podcast / The MV Podcast / January 14, 2016

The newest episode of The MV Podcast features our conversation with Sam Means. Means, formerly of The Format, has a new solo record coming out on January 22nd, titled 10 Songs. We do a deep dive on the record, along with some Hello Merch talk and at the end, we do touch on The Format and what he’d want out of a reunion.

Coming soon we’ll have our second installment of Revisiting The Smiths (and episode 100!!!).
